Social eating

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

That's my problem, well one of them anyway. You've met social drinkers? Yeah. That's me with eating. I went to a thing last night. I didn't have many calories to even play with, so I told myself to keep it light and keep it healthy. I did... at first. But then it was like "well everyone else is eating..." and I kept going back for more. AND I KEPT TELLING MYSELF TO STOP! I just didn't listen to me. Now I am suffering from a massive food hangover this morning. It really wasn't that I ate extremely unhealthy foods - I just ate too much. So now I'm feeling yucky and not in the mood for exercise. Ugh. I lack self control. I know this. But, today is a new day, and a clean slate. I can't let last night's near binge ruin my entire week. Maybe after some antacids, I will feel better. It's back to Day 5 of PIYO and probably swimming again this evening. (Back when I used SP before, there was no app. Then when they made the app, you couldn't blog from it. So now that I'm back, and the app has drastically improved, I'm mobile blogging and I can't use any of the emoticons. So just imagine loads of entertaining emoticons throughout the above blog. Unless you hate a lot of emoticons. In which case, you should just disregard this parentheses altogether.)

    It happens. When I go out to eat, I look at the plates around me... and the ease at which people can just eat whatever sounds good to them instead of analyzing it's healthiness and calories. But then I remind myself why I'm eating the way I eat and usually just barely hang on to resistance lol. Sometimes I give in and then regret it later. But it happens and you've got the right plan for yourself of doing what you need to do today!

    We all have days like this. The body wants what the body wants and if you don't give in now and again, it will just get worse. Don't feel guilty about it. Please take your advice and treat this like any day before and follow your plan. Professional athletes of team sports have the same problem when their team is losing. They have to treat each game as new and not let history weigh them down. You can do the same!

    I just to schedule those kind of days as my cheat days. Doesn't always work as they can be unpredictable and pop up after a planned cheat day. But at the end of the day, it was only one day. No one day will make or break this journey. Just do your PiYo and swimming and I'm sure you'll feel better.

    Social eating can be a problem. I think the trick is to limit calories the day of and even the day before an event so that you won't feel so guilty. The day after you can also limit the calories. Should do the trick unless you reallllly binge.
